Future Vision pilot is launched

By Arnold R. Grahl 
Rotary International News – 2 July 2010  

The first district grant under the Future Vision pilot will fund a variety of projects including a new computer lab for school children in Samut Prakan Province, Thailand. The pilot began 1 July. Photo courtesy of District 3330 

The Future Vision pilot, a three-year test of The Rotary Foundation's new, streamlined grant structure, is underway.

The pilot officially began 1 July, with 100 pilot districts that were selected from among hundreds of applicants in June 2009. The pilot districts will spend the next three years testing and helping to refine the Foundation's new grant model before all districts begin to participate in July 2013.

"I believe that through Future Vision, we will be able to serve our communities, and the world, in better and more effective ways," said Glenn E. Estess Sr., 2009-10 Foundation trustee chair, at the 2010 RI Convention in Montréal, Québec, Canada. "We will do the very most with everything we have. We will be able to address the challenges, large and small, that present obstacles to peace -- and dismantle those obstacles, one by one."
